This will not only boost our internal revenue but the users too will feel the impact of this government on their business,’’ he said.
In the same vein, the governor also ordered for the removal of a fallen articulated vehicle at Maje village from the road, to give way to motorists and avoid any accident.
He directed the Chairman of Maje Motor Parks, Malam Tanimu Audu, to ensure the vehicle was removed with immediate effect.
Audu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that, “This tanker was conveying goods to Minna, when it was involved in an accident due to the bad road’’.
Since the accident, the vehicle has remained here. Even the owner has abandoned it and it is causing hold-up.
